Some Beautiful Flowering Shrubs. (S688b: 1911)

Editor Charles H. Smith's Note: A short note with the above title containing a brief quote from a Wallace communication to The Garden; printed on page 362 of the 29 July 1911 issue. To link directly to this page, connect with:

    We have received from Mr. Alfred R. Wallace, Old Orchard, Broadstone, Wimborne, some very showy flowering shrubs, all of which are worthy of extended cultivation. The following observations accompany the flowers: "A few of my rarer shrubs showed abundant flower-buds this summer; but we have had here two months of almost continuous drought, with intense heat and alternate cold, drying winds, most unfavourable for a good display of the flowers, which are all more or less withering before fully expanded, but I send you a few before they quite fade."
